Well, now I am knitting on a ear/headband. It's knitting up nice. I am making it with some fuzzy yarn I have. Yeah I know, it isn't that fuzzy! Just a little fuzzy... not fuzzy enough to tickle ears or anything... just fuzzy enough to feel all soft and snugly!

Well the Rider's have brought home the cup, and with it, HELL FROZE OVER!!!! Yes, it is mighty chilly around here. Hubby had ordered one of those lovely pole shedy garage tarpy things. It arrived yesterday. The temp -23cel. and falling with windchill. And He wants to set it up. EW, tiz cold for that kinda stuff.... anyways, got the polls together, got it squared and anchored, got the front and back ends on... and called it a night. He wanted it up yesterday because... its getting colder this week... though today is warming up from its bitterness yesterday and is still cold! Yeah I know, I am complaining about the cold... so what.... Snow is pretty, cold is just bitter. and now I am done complaining!
HOORAY FOR OUR ROUGHRIDERS! GREAT JOB BRINGING HOME THE CUP!
Above is the picture of the fabric from the friend in Wynyard. Now, it is still in front of my dryer as I have not decided where on earth to put it, and haven't gone through it completely. I am going to have to soon as the laundry hamper is getting fuller! The 2 banana boxes are pants, Jeans. Which is great... as I think I will cut them up and make wrench holders out of them.... well.. might take up a couple pairs. As for the rest... well. Might become bags, purses.. and other such wonders. We shall see what my imagination dreams up. I took a little peak in the other boxes... and there are some very pretty pieces in there.. will be fun to play with. Beyond that... we shall see what happens... maybe I will share more pics with you.
Well, I think that's all I have to share... at the moment. :) TTYL

This pair is for My Nephew.
This, is the second vest I was telling you all about having to get to.... I got to it yesterday... Turned out all right... I thinks.
This is the Birthday package, BIL will receive.
This is the mitten to the set. The one I have done that goes with the neck warmer and the toque. Whatcha think? I think it's fun!
Cass, had an unfortunate incident with her knitting bag yesterday... well in yesterday's post anyways. And she was asking about Knitting bags. I haven't got a knitting bag. I have a knitting basket. It is in sore need of re-covering and lining but, it was my great grandma's. So, it feels like it should stay how it is... I know that may sound weird er something but, I just have this " I want to cover it, but it was Granny's" feeling. Anyways! I took pics so you all could see.
This is the pic with all the stuff in it. Yes there is a lot of stuff:
So, that's it for now. What's in your knitting bag/basket?

This is the toque I was making for my nephew. It's done, ends tucked in and all!!!
Here are the two together. I hope he likes them. The stripes are fun. A bit wide, but still lots of fun. Now, this is the new closet project. Below is the before picture.
See how the closet is right beside the bed? You know how many times I have kicked that thing in the middle of the night rolling over? I would then have to look an see if I woke up my hubby with the loud boom the doors would make upon contact.
See how there is a dresser on the other side of the room? We had to crawl up the end of the bed to get in. We also had to scootch our butts down the bed to get out. Try not to wake the other when you have to pee in the middle of the night!!! Or when you can't sleep anymore.
Now, see these! See how you can walk around that side of the bed now? Yes, we will probably need to put in new carpet but... am not in the giant hurry for it... I can live with that... specially now we can walk around the bed to get in or make it!!
See the beautiful new closet? See no doors. I know will be bad for dust on our cloths but hubby never had a door on his little closet before. No more giant "BOOM!" in the middle of the night from kicking the doors.
See all the space under it? I have a set of drawers, a laundry basket, space, garbage can and a night stand. Wow. I want to get a hamper and put where the basket is.. but we shall see... we have the basket and it doesn't cost anything because it has paid for itself already in the time I have had it!
And see what happened in the hubby's old closet space? OOH It is soooooo very very nice to walk around the bed to make it, change the sheets, and especially getting in and out of it... So nice!!! I love how the new closet looks... though the shelf needs some work, but, it functions and there is nothing pressing to get done in there! It's great! I love it!
